Effective communication is essential in our job, yet not all of us are communication experts.  As we prepare professional correspondence we are often faced with questions like, “What type of tone should I take in this email?”, “How can my department leverage social media?”, and “How do I break this bad news to faculty/administrators/students, etc.?”  This communications themed webinar featuring Jen LaGrange from Texas State University will provide insight into building communications plans, reaching out to large audiences, best practices for writing documentation and much more!

A member of the world-class information technology client services group known to Bobcats as the IT Assistance Center (ITAC), Jen is the leader of ITAC’s small yet hearty Training and Communications team.
